Hiya everyone! Tonight it is time for the Kiyomizu Autumn 2019 Hunt, where we are looking for cute ninja cats who offer free prizes when you click each one. They are hidden throughout the Kiyomizu Mall and in some of the stores' main locations too, so what I usually recommend is to check all the stores in the Kiyomizu Mall for signs (each tells you if there is a cat hidden and how many) then click a floating ghost in one of the walkways. They take you to a personalized website that shows how many kitties you have located and what URLs you still need to visit. There are no hints, and the cats can be any size (a few were small like an avatar's fingertip!) or flattened, and stuck fully inside boxes or walls. If you are good with wireframe, that might help you find the trickier felines. The hunt lasts until the 6th of October, so you have some time still to track them all down.
M*Motion has two hidden cats waiting for us, and they each want to offer you a part of the above outfit as a reward for finding them. The top is their C19 KYMZ Fringe Jacket, and the skirt is the C19 KYMZ Mini Frill Skirt, each of which are included in a Maitreya size for that very popular mesh body. They match perfectly, and have a playful Boho flavor that made me smile.
Next we have a beautiful dress from **milky-way that is also crafted for the Maitreya mesh body, *19-08 Lace Dress Maitreya. The dark teal shade is complemented by the black lace trim, and the trio of lighter green buttons on the bodice.
How cute is this apron from MeltingDots Freebie Store? :) It is called Doubutsu Apron and includes 3 fitmesh sizes (S,M,L) along with Freya, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine mesh body sizes. There is also a HUD provided with 10 choices, each a different animal on a solid background color of either pink, yellow, or light blue. It makes sense that I googled the word doubutsu and it looks like it means animal. There were plenty of cuddly little cuties to choose from, and please note this apron has no back so you might want to layer it over a dress or pants outfit for public wear.
In some parts of the world, and in a fair amount of SL, autumn means Halloween and dark colors with eye-catching patterns. This gift from SHOP KERO called Halloween Plaid Dress is surely no exception :) It comes in 5 fitmesh standard sizes plus eBody, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine versions. There is also a handy HUD enclosed with 8 different plaids for the dress, 8 colors each for the harness and lace, and 4 metals. You can even adjust the proportions of the texture with the arrows in the bottom right of the HUD, so play around and see what sizes and color combos you like.
My final look of the evening is an original mesh outfit from Frangipani Garden called *FG* Watermelon Tunic & Leggings - Yellow. If it looks familiar, they had a yellow watermelon item (ice cream float) in their lucky board at the Bon Odori event I blogged prizes from last month, so a popular variety of this tasty fruit treat. It comes in a Maitreya rigged size, but that just might work with other bodies if you use the alphas on the body's HUD and try it out. The black denim with slight acid wash looks lovely with the ruffle at the pant hems, and that capri length is sure to come in handy during cool days or evenings that are not quite cold yet :)
I am a bit slow tonight, thanks to a rough couple of days...my dental visit yesterday seemed routine enough, then late last night I realized that there was a gap between my gumline and an old crown. I thought maybe it shifted or had come loose, so I had to go back in this afternoon. Turns out it was a 10 year old filling that gave out (I'm guessing the hygienist got carried away, but I know fillings don't last forever) that led to more nitrous, plus novocaine, and delays because I'm a bleeder. It is expected to be sore for a few days I was told. Sound fun? Hehe, it was just unexpected and that made it more unpleasant than it should have been. Tomorrow I'm getting my hair cut and colored finally, so that might make me look less haggard and stressed out ;) My stylist is a sweet person and a hugger, so I am looking forward to some friendly embraces as much as the freshening of the hairdo. I sure hope you're all having a fantastic day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!
